THE on­set of the darker night can be a cue for hi­ber­na­tion in­stincts to emerge.

Warm­ing sup­pers and a glass of some­thing to help them down are the crea­ture com­forts that make win­ter bear­able – it’s some­thing the Dan­ish call ‘hygge’.

Trou­ble is, you can’t do that ev­ery night with­out put­ting your health at risk

That’s why it’s worth put­ting some finer wines to one side for those nights when you give your­self an ex­tra spe­cial treat.

A glass of some­thing out of the or­di­nary ac­quired by spend­ing a bit more than usual pro­vides a nice fo­cal point for those nights in – and also gives you some­thing to talk about out­side of the stresses of work
